Sims3 Two Level Story House. [SOLVED]

Post by SimsBrianna on Sat 26 Nov 2016, 01:26

So I have the Sims3 on my windows 7 professional 64 bit with cc and mods and it runs pretty fine. Currently my  sims are in a one level story house but every time I am up on a second level story lot  my screen goes black then it goes normal again then goes black again and I hear this weird errrr sound that makes me  have to restart my laptop all over again. Please help! I really want a second level story house without my game messing up. I have looked all over the internet and have not found anyone that is going through what I am so please help.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
I can't say that I have ever heard of this particular problem myself. But let's try a couple of things that may help.


-For starters: visit the webpage of your graphic card manufacturer and make sure you have the latest driver updates.
-Try the game with e "clean folder" to rule out incompatibility of or between mods/cc. To do this, temporarily move the folder "The Sims 3" out of Documents\Electronic Arts.


When you start the game, a new folder will be generated and you will be without your mods/cc (and savegames) of course. Just start any world and any family to see if you can view the 2nd story of the lot.

Does your graphics card meet all the requirements?

Those integrated cards sometimes pose some unexpected problems, unfortunately Sad

Okay It took me some time but I found out that my graphic card had been out of date for 72 months which was crazy. So I really really updated the graphics card and once even though my computer said it was updated but anyway I went to a random sims3 household with a two level story house and it worked for about 15 seconds before the screen blacked out on me again.

When you updated the card, did you do a clean update? That means, completely removing the drivers, and installing them from scratch. That might help, if your card meets the specifications.


How about your in-game graphics settings, anything to tweak there? I'm not necessarily thinking of the settings that can go from low-high, more like, turning off advanced rendering etc.

Okay! So I unistalled the driver card just like you suggested and reinstalled and it worked! I was beyond relived and shocked. Then I decided to see if it will work with my mods and cc and it did! Thank you so much
